    Just heard via Rinse on Twitter that they have been awarded an FM licence.

    I wonder if Kool will apply for one now?

    nice onee (y) but what would be the bonus of having a liscence tho? cus no one stopped them pirating so why not carry on that way and not pay for the liscence?

    Not sure what the bonuses are but surely it's good for the UK scene.

    Pretty sure they were tried to be stopped, like all pirate stations are, but from what i've heard they have a very very good studio set up.

    It doesnt really mean much to me, have never been able to get Rinse on FM where I live and I doubt that will change with an FM license

    good news for the urban music scene though

    I doubt that mate.

    A bigger audience (transmitter) will be first on the cards i think.

    I do get a D&B radio station on 87.5 FM where I live though, anyone know what that is? Usually its very fuzzy but sometimes its loud and clear. Im thinking its Mystery FM?
